Modeled after a 1970s retro soccer shoe, the Kick - LV (Low Volume) is a uniquely crafted climbing shoe. A perfect companion for intermediate climbers, the shape is slightly arched and perfectly tensioned in the heel. Developed with comfort and function in mind, the medium stiffness midsole helps to enable the shoe to retain its clean shape. Minimal stretching can occur with all leather shoes, but So iLL suggests guys order one size up from street shoe size for a comfort fit and a half size up for a performance fit. For ladies, So iLL suggests ordering a half size down for comfort fit and a full size down for performance fit.
